Now Playing Onstage in New Hampshire - Week of 4/27/2014 HOTEL LAPUTTS
Community Players of Concord
5/2-5/4/2014
The eccentric La Putts family (Buddy, Yvette, Grandpa & Grandma and two somewhat average children) is desperately scrambling to keep their family business from foreclosure…an old fashion/out-of-date and out-of-the-way hotel offering peace, tranquility and seclusion from what is known as "The American Rat Race". A second mortgage is definitely out of the question since they are unable to pay off the first. Then one fine day a charming "pharmaceutical salesman" (Harry Warner) stumbles upon the secluded hide-away. Enamored with its sequestered location, Harry recognizes its potential promising monthly sales meetings, lots of guests and lots of dollars. Buddy believes his prayers have been answered. Now who doesn't believe in miracles? Throw in a few of "Harry's friends", his simple-minded/ditsy fiance (Mara Dingle), a private detective with delusions of grandeur (Adrian Snoops), a pair of 80-year-old newly weds, the Feds, and the family parrot (Jose) that may be too smart for its own feathers, and you are in for a wild ride as the La Putts family ultimately discover they have been duped and are now personally involved with a notorious drug cartel. They soon learn what it means to stick together and fight for their lives.

Now Playing Onstage in New Hampshire - Week of 4/27/2014 AUGUST: OSAGE COUNTY
The Players' Ring Theatre
4/18-5/4/2014
The movie shows a bright and beautiful outside, but Letts's play is set in a hot, dark, cramped house, where during one Oklahoma August, the large Weston family unexpectedly reunites. They gather to find out where, maybe even why, their head-of-house Beverly Weston, a lapsed poet, has chosen to vanish. Given his pill-popping wife, Violet, and the rest of the family's many shady secrets, the family homestead implodes with the weight of unwanted truths. It's a family whose love has become irony, who all suffer from 'the Plains,' - a condition much like the Blues. Alan Huisman directs this major new play, which unflinchingly - and uproariously - exposes the dark side of the American family. Sanford Farrier and Carol Davenport play Beverly and Violet Weston. The other players are, in their pairs: Peggi McCarthy and Cary Wendell, Helen Brock and John Tullgren, Laurie Torosian and Michael Stailey, Megan Davenport Karas and Joseph Bodnar. Samantha Bagdon plays granddaughter Jean, and Liz Locke plays Johnna, the housekeeper.
